Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

The Jazz Esquires Ride Again

To paraphrase Mark Twain, it would appear that the report of the death of the Jazz Esquires is greatly exaggerated!
Peter Ninnim tells me the band, although no longer in a residency, is still together in a revamped line-up and available for gigs playing in a mainstream/early Basie style. The photo shows:
Tenor  Sax: Tony Winder; Trombone: Terry Dalton: Trumpet/vocal: Miles Watson; Piano: Roy Gibson; Guitar: Robin Douthwaite: Drums: Pete Ninnim: Bass: Ray Newton
